This is truely sad, grew up on Three's Company as a kid (the original, not the reruns) and my dad was a big fan Johnny Cash. In fact recently we have introduced our kids to some of Cash's songs and they got a kick out of One Peice at a Time and A boy Name Sue. The Old Lady and I were just discussing wether he had passed away or not and then I saw on the news something about the fact that he just performed recently. I thought that was cool, but I guess it happens to all sooner or later, truely sad.
Our childhood ends the day we truely realize we are going to die one day.
